The RJO gym was packed with community members excited to celebrate some of the wonderfully giving residents of our community who received awards during the brunch.

“This is Kings Park, a group gets together and takes care of a problem,” explains Museum director, Leo Ostebo. “Kings Park has quality.”

Each year the Kings Park Central School District recognizes individuals for their contributions. Four types of awards are presented: The Ralph J Osgood Award is presented to teachers, the Llyod Sphar Award to non-teaching staff, the Dr. Robert Cody Award to local residents and the Dr. Mary DeRose Award to alumnus – all who have helped to enriched the quality of education in our community.

In addition to the school district’s awards, the Kings Park Heritage Museum also presents their Helping Hands Award to those individuals who have helped the Museum with various projects throughout the year.

Also this year, Museum director Leo Ostebo received an award of appreciation in recognition of his dedication to promoting Irish culture in the Kings Park community from the Ancient Oder of Hibernians.
